LEED has become the industry standard for demonstrating the “sustainability” of new construction and rehabilitation projects. Increasing numbers of NPS and other rehabilitation projects are aspiring to LEED certification. As a result, there is a growing need for preservationists to become LEED accredited professionals.Towards meeting this demand, NCPTT will offer a LEED New Construction & Major Renovations Exam Preparation Workshop, May 20-22, 2009. This three day workshop will prepare participants to take the LEED-NC 2.2 exam.
Faculty for the workshop is Donna Isaacs, a USGBC LEED AP, graduate of University of Florida and Miami-Dade College. She currently instructs LEED workshops around the state of Florida for the UF TREEO Center.
While it is too late to register to take the LEED-NC 2.2 exam, the material covered will be useful to anyone considering taking the exam for the upcoming version of LEED, LEED v.3. For anyone who has already registered to take the LEED exam prior to the end of June, this will be one of the only offerings in this area.
The workshop will be held at NCPTT headquarters in Natchitoches, LA. Housing is available at University Place on the campus of Northwestern State University for $18 per day. Alternatively, Natchitoches has a host of hotels and bed and breakfasts.
